Dennis’ men’s softball team, Fast & Furious is back on the fields for the spring season and tonight is game night. Thursdays need to be quick and on the lighter side. I chose to make BLT sandwiches for dinner tonight but wanted to change it up a bit so used ciabatta rolls that I came across this morning when I was doing some shopping at Sprouts Farmers Market. I also used red leaf lettuce instead of the usual iceberg.
I cooked my bacon in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. In the last 10 minutes, I added my ciabatta rolls to the oven to toast them a bit.
While my bacon was cooking and my rolls toasting, I cut up a beefsteak tomato and gathered up my lettuce and set it aside.
Once the bacon and rolls were done, I spread mayonnaise on both sides of the roll, and layered it with my lettuce, tomato and bacon.
Our dinner called for nothing more than fruit as a side dish.
red leaf lettuce
2 slices of bacon per sandwich
2 slices of tomato per sandwich
1 tablespoon mayonaise per sandwich
pinch of kosher salt
Cook bacon in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Cut ciabatta rolls in half and lay on a baking sheet. Bake in the same 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Spread both halves of bread with mayo and layer the bottom half with lettuce (sprinkle tomato slices with a pinch of kosher salt), tomato and bacon. Top with other half of roll. Enjoy!
Until next time, Kris
